The State Minister of Finance Jacob Aligo told legislators yesterday after being summoned to answer why his ministry cannot present the 2012-2013 budgets for approval by the parliament.

The minister also failed to present a quarterly report on the state’s expenditure on the 2011-2012 budgets.

Alogo told the house that prior to the centralization of the collections of the non-oil revenues this year, his ministry has not received the share of the Central Equatoria State on the revenue collection from the National Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning as it is supposed to do.

Following the shut down of the oil production early this year, the national government embarked on intensifying policies it considered cost effective by centralizing the collection of all revenues in the country.

The role was previously executed by the states governments.

“The problem is that after centralizing the ministry failed to send our share. Up until now there is no transparent implementation of this policy,” Aligo told the legislators.

“We are first going to petition the national government to ensure justice is done.” He said.
